The Heart is the Frame

Emily Roysdon Untitled (David Wojnarowicz project), 2001-2007 11x14 inch silver gelatin print Courtesy of the artistThe Heart is the Frame is a group exhibition at LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibition) that questions the practice of everyday living by breaking down the cinematic guise of commonplace existence into a series of still images.Sharon Lockhart Panel Line Break Room-  Roland, Phil, John and Shermie, 2008 Two framed chromogenic prints 49 x 61 inches (124.6 x 155.5 centimeters) Edition of 6, 2AP It aims to surface the scripts that direct one’s daily course, and address the ways in which one’s actions are bound to a designated articulation of time – at a given pace / in the present / moving forward – and its ensuing choreographies of movement.Tris Vonna-Michell Addendum I (Berlin), 2014 Lightbox shelf montage installation consisting of backlit photographic printsThe exhibition explores the routinized acts that constitute the dailyness of life – from workplace tasks to the maintenance of public life – to bare the impact of habitual existence and to ask what happens when these unromantic acts amass or shift out of sync. William E. Jones Berlin Flash Frames, 2010 video stillAmong the works, impending variations take the form of strange encounters, temporal contractions, and deviations off-path, all placed alongside the mills of necessity that ask one to consume and create at a prescribed rate.Anna Sew-Hoy, Tissue-Dispensing (double), 2012 By examining notions of reiteration and routine – acts that are irreplaceable but endlessly repeatable – and their ruptures, The Heart is the Frame aims to unveil how these recurring processes shape our conception of time and our relationship to the body and its uses.

The show is curated by LACE Assistant Director Shoghig Halajian, with works by Leidy Churchman, Harry Dodge, William E. Jones, Sharon Lockhart, Emily Roysdon, Anna Sew Hoy, and Tris Vonna-Michell
